The Look: The Reformation Carrerra Dress
With Freja Beha Erichsen in Chanel's spring '10 ads as my inspiration, I'm on the hunt for a dramatic, Argentine dress to wear for those "I'm Fancy!" occassions in the summer. During my daily scroll through The Reformation's site, this gorgeous showstopper caught my eye. I have to have it.

The Inspiration: Freja Beha Erichsen for Chanel Spring '10 
No ad campaign has ever felt as dramatic as this one, shot in Argentina by Karl Lagerfeld and styled by Alex White. There's something very delicate about the clothing mixed with the toughness of the environment and Beha's mood. I am truly obsessed with it.
